We treat the following:
- Miniere's Disease
- Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo
Hearing evaluations involve measuring hearing sensitivity and speech understanding. Middle ear function is assessed. Test interpretation, counseling, and treatment recommendations are provided.
Hearing evaluations involve behavioral assessment of hearing and evaluation of middle ear function. Interpretation of results, counseling, and treatment recommendations are discussed with the child's parent or guardian.
Auditory Brain Stem Response (ABR)
ABR is the electrophysiologic measurement of neural activity in response to sound. This noninvasive procedure assesses the neural integrity of the acoustic nerve.
We offer hearing sensitivity assessment to children through the ABR test. The procedure takes place with or without mild sedation while the child is closely monitored at all times.
Newborn ABR hearing screening
The ABR test is provided to our youngest patients as a screening mechanism to detect hearing loss in infants from birth to five months.
Vestibular (Balance) Evaluations
Vestibular/balance functioning is evaluated in this test, while eye movements are recorded under different stimulus conditions.
This functional test evaluates a patient's ability to make use of various visual, vestibular, and somatosensory cues.
Auditory Processing Evaluations
In children, auditory processsing evaluations consist of a battery of behavioral tests designed to evaluate the integrity of the central auditory nervous system. Interpretation of results, counseling options, and treatment recommendations are discussed with the parent or guardian.
Otoacoustic Emissions Testing
Otoacoustic emissions testing can be performed to assess the sensory component of hearing by evaluating hair cell function in cochlea, or inner ear.
